Apologize if this has been asked before.
I am setting up a vSphere 5.5 environment and I have enough 1GB NICs per host to dedicate two NICs per host for Fault Tolerance. I was wondering the best way to set this up for maximum network throughput. Do I set it up like Multi-NIC Vmotion? Like stated here: VMware KB: Multiple-NIC vMotion in vSphere 5. Basically using two Port Groups like FT-1 and FT-2. Or do I have to do it like Multi-NIC iSCSI with separate vswitches and each vswitch with a one of the Port Groups.
Thanks in advance.
No throughput issue, just initial setup and redundancy is needed. Thanks for your answer though as this tells me I have to use a single port group (maybe even just a single switch) with one adapter as active and the other standby.
Appreciate the help!
